Hi everyone, my name's Benjamin, 46 years old . French guy living in La londe les Maures near Hyères in the beautifull sunny south of France for about 3 years now. I've been living abroad ( UK, Australia, Us...) for quite some time between 1995 and 2005 but my english is getting all rusty as I don't practise it much these days. So i would love to find foreign people here in the Var region to go for hikes, bike rides or paddle runs ... speak english. If you want to meet up for anything , do not hesitate to contact me. Benjamin

Would be great to hear from you if interested in regular games of Scrabble - daytime or evening. Could be combined with lunch or supper as a good social event that keeps the mind in gear too! Valbonne/Opio area.

Sorry to post almost the same as a couple of posts below.  I'm looking for a mooring of about 10m to buy or rent in the area of Antibes to Mandelieu.  Any leads would be gratefully received.  Thanks in advance.

How many Captains out there running yachts came from the Merchant Navy,are you really qualified;this is the time it takes to become a Master Mariner,5 years. 1 year at pre sea cadet course.Credits in Maths and Science a plus. 2 years at sea as a deck cadet learning ship operations,stowage,stability,and watch keeping. Then ashore for training in Fire fighting,survival,radar,radio. This is followed by another 7 month refresher course at college for you 3/2 mates ticket. then back to sea for 18 months as a junior watch officer. then back to college for refresher ready for 1st Mates and modular training in ship management,medical and more radar. 1 more year at sea as a senior officer could sail as 1st mate but more likely as second. Then back to college for six months refresher before sitting your Masters. So five years with in between gaining vital experience at sea in a practical manner and as a cadet learning your deck first while working your way up. Many skippers out there have yachtmasters only, with Navigation and ancillary training only,firefighting,medical/radio,etc. No real ship operations or management training,no stability in real terms.but with gross tonnage on some vessels being small with no cargo space then a vessel of 50 plus metres could be yours if you have a 200 GRT yachtmasters,one is pleasure industry and one is commercial,now Merchant  Navy are more than qualified so can board your vessels but you cant board a Merchant ship in command,so if it was uprated in rules to standardise everyone, many of you would find the need to spend many hours and more money and time to achieve this.Yachts are vessels that need to be foreign going if taking full advantage of the seasons but so would you skippers if rules change to Foreign going class 1 Master Mariners.And Insurance companies well may be the ones calling the shots here.

Over the summer, after the hardships of quarantine, I have reached out on Facebook proposing to teach people crochet for free, and this has been the highlight of my summer - I have met some amazing people, and it so rewarding to see people learn a new skill! I am planning on continuing free classes - but the space in my kitchen is limited... So I am also going to run a few paid workshops (crochet and macramé) in the creative space "Les Socquettes de l'Archiduchesse" in Biot. I also knit very well :) So if you would like to learn a new craft, dust up on your skills or just meet fellow crafters, please don't be shy. We also have a Facebook group...

Hi Everyone, Has anyone like me moved to France holding an ICC boat license and then converted it to a French boat license ? I’m interested in the procedure now as I’m a French resident since many years and thinking about buying a boat (as opposed  to using my ICC every time I rented a boat in France). Thanks in advance for any input

Hello All, Looking to go on a cruise next summer with children. I was thinking Mediterranean or Disney (paris) or Greek islands cruise, we are open to anything really. But again must be Child friendly. Do they normally depart and return in France?I'm sorry, never been on a cruise so this is all new to us. Appreciate all of your experiences and opinions!
